I was just diagnosed three weeks ago, so I'm still trying to figure out proper dosages and everything. I work second shift, so I take my insulin late. I'm currently on 15 units of Lantus and I usually take it around 2 am. My blood sugar is usually a little higher at that time, because I eat when I get home from work, usually around 12:30 am. My bedtime blood sugars are higher because it's typically close to that last meal. My am blood sugars have been in the 90's lately.
I take my Lantus between 8-9 pm. My blood sugar is always different when I do my Lantus at night but your blood sugar should stay stable all night and be around the same in the morning if your Lantus dose is correct. If my blood sugar was 140 when I did my Lantus I would want my sugar in the morning to be between 110-180. If its lower or higher than this I might be on the wrong dose of Lantus. I take between 7.5 - 6 units of Lantus depending on how active I am.
